Southern cycle corridor consultation

The proposed route for the Southern Cycle Corridor, part of the Nottingham Cycle City Ambition Programme (NCCAP) has been published.

The route seeks to “fill in the gaps” where off-carriageway facilities are missing along the route that runs from Nottingham Train Station to the Clifton Park and Ride, as well as the Nottingham Trent University Clifton Campus.

The route runs along Queens Bridge Road, up along Queens Walk, over the Toll Bridge, along Beckett Way and alongside the tram to Clifton then along Farnborough Road to the park and ride. There are also spurs along Southchurch Drive and along Main Road (Wilford) and to NTU at Clifton where we are liaising with Highways England about improving the route that falls within their jurisdiction. The entire route will also be signed to help with way finding and linking to other cycle facilities and destinations.

Funding is not yet available for –
–          Queens Bridge Road (Vat and Fiddle): would like a wider, shared facility, public realm improvements and a removal of traffic to create a high standard pedestrian and cycle link; this will be reviewed as part of the proposed redevelopment here called Unity Square.
–          Queens Bridge Road (linking to Queens Walk): assess junction again once Broadmarsh changes are implemented.

RIVERSIDE WAY: A direct link from the Old Toll Bride and Riverside Way to Robin Hood Way is to be created. This will link the Southern Cycle Corridor to the River Leen route as well as the NG2 business park.
